Britain's Got Talent 2016: Alex Magala's final performance to be pre-recorded

Alexandr Magala: Britain's Got Talent

Alexandr Magala's performance on the Britain's Got Talent 2016 final will be pre-recorded, it has been revealed.

The sword swallower has shocked us twice now with his jaw dropping stunts, putting his life on the line at every stage of this year's show.

In the semi-finals earlier this week, Alex was seen dropping down a pole blindfolded onto spinning metal spikes.

However the act was pre-recorded in front of the judges and audience before being aired on TV.

"I was fighting for [my semi-final performance] because there were so many health and safety issues - you have no idea," Alex explained following the 'live' show, "But I'm glad I insisted on, 'It will be exactly like I want', and they agreed.

"And now they just don't have a choice!"

He's now through to the live final and with £250,000 and a spot on the Royal Variety up for grabs is planning to go all out.

He teased earlier this week: "I'm not sure about my next one, because I don't know if the production team will approve it and if they will allow me to do it, because it's another crazy idea."

While producers have okayed his latest stunt it will again be pre-recorded beforehand.

"I would advise them to pre-record it. I actually haven't done this before," Alex told DigitalSpy. "I'm pretty confident, and I have this tension again about it and it really doesn't let me sleep at night.

"And I don't have much time for rehearsing because it's this Saturday, so I'm nervous a bit."

The Britain's Got Talent 2016 final airs Saturday night on ITV from 7:30PM.
